Took my new Grand Canyon HT 29er around Penmachno, which was fantastic; it’s a brilliant, fun and fast thing to ride and I love it 😀
Which led to an illustration of what an odd kit choice Canyon made speccing white saddle and grips 😕
Second run was ended prematurely by a 1″ rip through Schwalbe tissue-paper Ralph sidewall 🙁Posted 5 years agotrail_ratMember

Dry trails .. I’ve never cursed dry trails before ) big all-day loop on a rigid SS in the Chilterns, loads of fast-dried hoof churn and today I feel more beat up than I can remember. You know it’s bad when your legs want to go faster but you can’t face the shake-down.Posted 5 years ago
I got home in the dark, just in time to make food and watch the Paris Roubaix highlights when I stopped feeling sorry for myself pretty quick – how fast over the cobbles?!KingofBiscuitsMember
Cheeky trip to the Lakes this weekend. Again mixed conditions but mostly dry. Rode the excellent Ullswater singletrack route on the Saturday and then Lonscale Fell the following day. Great weather and riding on both days. Just sat at work now wanting to be back out there riding 🙁Posted 5 years agoM1llh0useMember

Not a lot on saturday. towed my 4 year old up to the local woods on sunday morning with the Trailgator. Unhooked his Islabike at the top and gave him his first rooty singletrack downhill experience. He loved it 🙂 No pics though…
Went for a walk (aka trail exploration) on sunday afternoon up to the racecourse and got there just as the drama occured and the Air Ambulance arrived.Posted 5 years agoSannySubscriber
Lovely early morning spin with my mate Andy round Argarten and then the Coire Grogain loop in Arrochar. It was the first time since the nineties that I rode the former and the latter allowed me to scope out part of the three lochs way route. According to his GPS type thing, I must have ridden not far off 7000 feet of climbing which seemed like a fair bit for a morning ride 😯 I’m not convinced it was that much and that his iPhone was telling porkies but it was a nice ride nonetheless. 😀Posted 5 years agoscott_mcavennie2Member
Saturday – marathon training. Took a couple of minutes off my half marathon PB, running alongside the Thames. It was a nice run on a glorious day.
Sunday – up early for a 15 mile blast on the Surrey hills. An epic morning although I was pushing up most climbs by the end.
First weekend I have enjoyed mainly because of the weather in a year I think.Posted 5 years ago
